one floored me. >> that was -- >> rose: john dickerson. >> charlie, one thing about the horses and bayonets line, i think al is exactly right there was substance to the barb, but we should just bring in the other, we were talking about ohio let a let's talk about virginia and the number one recipient of money for defense spending the southeastern portion of the state a lot of ship building, 45 percent of the hampton roads area of the economy comes from defense spending, so romney may have lost it on the policy there but he may have the politics right in terms of his defense spending, i would circle back o the issue of women. the number of time they both talked about rights for women in the middle east they kept come back to that and there was clearly an effort to go for women when they went into that, into that cull again sack on domestic, cul-de-sac on domestic policy they went back to. when romney talked about bipartisan solution and in massachusetts on education that was sort of a three for on the pandering to women front, so there was a lot of mess sick in domestic .. a lot of

were mitt roey to present obama. >> rose: john dickerson -- >> charlie. >> rose: okay, gwen first. >> okay, two completely different debates, ho however, t was a debate, that was a two for one policy debate martha is laying out there which -- in fact bob schieffer asked mitt romney about drones but didn't ask the president about drones, assuming everyone knew he thinks it is a good idea so that was not -- that was that is what this debate was, it was a 47, 47, 48, 49 poll you are looking at backdrop, these guys walked into the stage tonight and one of them wanted to keep it going the way it has been going and at is mtt romney, which is to say with the wind at his back and the other guy wanted to staunch any damage and send a signal to folks out there who are his supporters to rev them up and get them excited, there were a couple of moments where they drip away and think to myself, if this same behavior had occurred at the first debate that is to say the president came out of the box punching and governor romney had laid-back and said i agree with you, how different this campaign w

pbs and raddatz of nbc and john dickerson of, and slight magazine i am pleased to have each of them here this evening for this important debate and as always i begin with al hunt in washington. al. >> carlie, i think mitt romney went into this debate and the calculation was all he had to do was hold his own, he would win a draw and just show he could be commander in chief. in many ways it was very similar to the strategy barack obama had ironically in denver and in both cases i believe it misfired. almost from the beginning romney was on his heels and as the debate shaped up he ended up agreeing with barack obama's policies on just a stunning number of issues on bin laden, on drones, on pakistan, on getting out of afghanistan, in 2014, iranian sanctions, syria defending israel, even to some extent on libya. so i don't think this debate changes the dynamics a great deal, people aren't going to vote on foreign policy, but i think if governor romney hoped to build a little momentum which he appears to have had with tonight and in florida he certainly did not achieve that and i think we

. john dickerson is our political director. john, with just a week until election day, how is this going to affect their campaigns? >> reporter: well, no candidate wants to look like he's taking political advantage of this cry seusz so with a week before the election this should be a time of frantic political activity but now the campaigns have to pear way back and calibrate every political move. usually at this time the campaigns are trying to hone their message down to a single simple closing argument to punch through the voters. but that's been interrupted and complicated now. both men have canceled a series of campaign events. the president has an official role and his strategists are trying to both highlight that role while at the same time not looking like they're doing so. mitt romney as no official role but by turning his campaign into a relief effort shows he cares and it keeps him in the news at this key time. losing the candidate on the stump is a blow to both campaigns in the battleground states where a candidate visit is an important part of the organization. it gets t

. >> rose: john dickerson what is the defense of the romney forces after the debate? >> well, i think the defense on the libya question which will be very interesting and it is the way these debates get scored by those who watch them and for those people on the libya question, romney came out on the short end, certainly for those who just watched the performance, but then, and then in the coming days, though, you can imagine romney saying, if he -- we may have lost audio there did we lose audio with john? am i back? >> yes, you are back. >> sorry. the romney campaign says i may have been wrong at the moment but the president was wrong on the policy and the more libya is discussed with daily disclosures about the mistakes that were made and the incorrect stories at the first, if that is the story that is being debated as the days go by, that is bad for the obama administration, so maybe a loss for romney in the 90 minutes but in the day to come probably not that bad for him. >> rose: albert, who took the economic argument tonight? >> well, again, i think the agenda was largely set by obama

prepared he was in that first debate charlie. >> back in a moment, john dickerson. >> well, charlie, i think, you know, there was -- you wondered at one point if there was a part in the memorandum of understanding how they were going to run this debate at one point they could all take it outside because they got awfully close and rough with each other there. i thought that, you know, the president had to stop his slide and he did. he not only defined mitt romney, when i was talking to an obama advisor in ohio and asked what do you want to hear in the next debate they said outsourcing and autos and offshore. >> obama in his second answer hit all of those and talked at the end about the 47 percent video, smart to do it at the end when governor romney couldn't respond to it. although romney had responded sort of prebutted it in the previous answer. he also tied governor romney to the republicans in congress, he had that sort of rhetorical moment when he kept saying this is what they wanted in the republican congress and mitt romney signed up for all of it so he was not only -- he was on o

doesn't take that sufficiently into account. >> rose: chuck todd and john dickerson, chuck todd first, so what impact might this have in ohio? >> think, i think frankly it doesn't -- romney folks have clearly started to close the gap i think obama still has a small lead. i wouldn't call it significant anymore but when you talk, there is clearly a bit of an organizational edge and a small lead but i don't think romney lost any ground that he made up in his first debate victory and i think we are going to sort of turn now to a grinded out period, okay? you have hyperpart stance fired up, i assume the president's enthusiasm numbers will now top back up a little bit and get closer to republican levels but don't lose sight of that charlie, republican enthusiasm has been higher than democratic enthusiasm than even before romney's first debate and it got higher after the second debate. >> rose: yes, jon. >> in ohio, charlie, they wanted to hear the president talk about those things about governor romney raised doubts about him, be on the offense, because early voting is going on there, the guys

director john dickerson in washington. john, a lot of discussion of benghazi right now. on election day how much do voters typically factor in foreign policy? >> well n this election where voters have told us consistently that they care the most about sdwrobs and the economy, that's likely to be the big issue on everybody's mind. the political danger for the president, though, about the libya issue is that the romney campaign is trying to attach it to a larger critique of this administration. that on issues from libya to the economy they are out of ideas. that they are not on the case that they've not been showing leadership. so in that way it's a way for romney to make a case about the administration as a whole even though it's on an issue that will not be front of mind for voters. >> jeff: let's talk about the electoral college math now if we could for a moment. what does the math look like right now for each candidate? >> the math favors president obama at the start. there are more states that he is likely to win in his column than for mitt romney. then when you look at the battlegro

" political columnist. and last but not least, our own john dickerson. but before we begin this discussion, i do want to take note that former south dakota senator george mcgovern, who was the democratic presidential candidate in 1972, died this morning. he was 90. he had remained active in public service and interested in politics and public affairs until the very end. last spring, moderated a panel at hunter college in new york that included senator mcgovern, former vice president walter mondale, among others, and he was energetic, engauging, and very witty. he was a world war ii bomber pilot before going into politics. and even those who disagreed with him that you felt him as a very nice man. george mcgovern has passed on at 90. and now to the news of the day. peggy noonan, let's start with you. what do you think the stakes are for this debate tomorrow night? >> oh, i think the stakes are pretty high for both candidates. it is the last of three debates. it is the last time i think the american people are going to see these two men together before voting day on november 6. there is a lot t

university in new york, let's bring in our political director, john dickerson. john, the format tomorrow is a town hall meeting. what kind of challenges does that present for the candidates? >> reporter: well, both candidates are trying to strike a balance, criticize their opponent while not appearing so aggressive that they turn off voters. that would be hard to do in any debate setting, but in this case they'll be doing it in response to a question from a voter in the audience. the more a candidate talks about their opponent's flaws, the more it looks like they're not tnswering the voter's question. it's one thing to ignore at a moderator but when it's a voter it's more dangerous, especially when the voter shows their vspleasure on their face for the cameras. >> pelley: john, you've been talking to your sources at the obama campaign. tomorrow will be their last chance to talk about the economy and the obama campaign is changing its strategy a bit. >> reporter: they're betting people are feeling better about the economy. the unemployment rate is below 8% and in that "washington

. >> rose: yes, go ahead. >> >> rose: john. >> john heilemann here. let me just add to what mark said, and go back to what john dickerson said a moment ago. the race is, in terms of the polling and how tight it is and the basic dynamics, it looks wide on the side of enconventions but one thing that changes athe republin w had a close race with obama leading in the close states narrowing and a totally consistent strategy from the end of the republican primary straight through to september, which was not mitt romney is a liar, not mitt romney is a phony, not mitt romney is a flip flopper but mitt romney is a right wing extremist that's wha what they e been saying and been on that consistently and what happened in denver was mitt romney threw a monkey wrench into that plan and what w what we have seen ine last week is obama campaign scram blink around trying to recalibrate and they have had the message they have gotten to now is they are trying to simultaneously and this is what you saw biden do all might tonight simultaneously say, romney is a liar, can't be trusted, isn't telling the truth, can't be trusted and also let me re

john dickerson to explain it all tonight. john. >> reporter: scott, those toss-up states in gray are the only ones where both candidates have a shot at winning the majority of the vote. in the battle to get 270 electoral votes, in the vast majority of states you just need to win by one vote to get all the electoral votes in the state. in all the other nontoss had up states, one party dominates by enough that a candidate of the minority party would never have a realistic chance. >> john, thank you very much. at tuesday's dthe long battle over the keystone pipeline briefly came up. tonight, the owner, transcanada, has temporarily shut down the existing section which carries oil from alberta canada to illinois to oklahoma. tests show possible safety issues. you may recall president obama blocked a proposed extension of the pipeline to port arthur, texas, citing a lack of environmental studies. we go inside the cdc, as it races to stop a deadly outbreak of meningitis.
